National Fisherman

AquaBounty, a company that produces genetically modified salmon eggs at a P.E.I. hatchery, has applied to sell its fish in Canada.
The company's latest financial outlook reveals it's asking for approval from the federal government to sell its fast-growing salmon as food in this country.
The salmon from AquaBounty's genetically modified eggs grow at twice the rate of regular salmon, making them potentially lucrative as farmed fish.
